If only my children could embrace this restaurant I would b here weekly! The scallops and fish and cauliflower steak are all amazing. Very limited beer selection but the food makes up for it. Menu has beg options and gluten free options. Smallish restaurant that stays busy so must plan ahead for bigger group

Although I am not a vegetarian, I have had some great meals at vegetarian restaurants. Veg offers a nice tight menu with the option of adding or deleting fish and seafood. We had both vegetarian and seafood meals that were decent but nothing to make me crave a return visit. The matzah ball soup was ok, but mostly carrots and... More

First off we are vegans so we were thrilled that they had a large vegan selection. Also, not only did they have a wide selection but it was good. So good that we went 3 times while were visiting Sarasota. Our favorite meals were the Homemade vegan burger patty, the Silly Philly, and Pulled Jack Fruit BBQ. I also recommend... More

Had signature salad, Greek phyllo with salad and a wrap. All were tasty. Overall good variety on menu. Service excellent. Slightly noisy but still okay to discuss business.

Our neighbors suggested this place as he's vegan and she is, well, I guess partial vegan (eats fish). DH and I are neither; true carnivores, we, however, we're always up to try something new. I thought the food was pretty tasty (although a bit too much rice in my kale bowl, would have preferred more kale as I am a... More

Veg has so many great choices for healthy eating. Seafood, Vegetarian entrees, Salads and they acommodate gluten free and raw vegan. Fresh veggies and seafood. Many amazing choices and specials. Nice organic beers and wines. You won't be disappointed! Quaint setting and friendly service. Supporting ur local farmers and businesses was never so easy!

I've been going to Veg for years with my daughter and we love it! It's our special place to eat when she has a day off of work. We always order the Avocado Dream....and that's just what it is too! It's slices of perfectly ripe avocado, bean sprouts, and a creamy sauce that's delicious! We always get he coleslaw too... More

We ate lunch and dinner here and enjoyed it very much. The Teriyaki Veggie Burger was delicious. We tried the Vegan Mess which had sauerkraut and did not like it. I guess you have to be a lover of sauerkraut. I particularly enjoyed all the the vegan desserts. My favorites were the salted caramel cheesecake, brownie parfait, mocha cheesecake. I... More
